For Master's students planning to enrol per February 2024, the UU Reserved Accommodation Programme offers furnished rooms and studios via housing provider SSH Short Stay. Because the housing is not owned by Utrecht University, contracts are between the tenant and the housing provider.
Types of housing
For Master's students who plan to enrol per February, SSH Short Stay offers furnished private rooms and studios in two residence buildings. The accommodations include all the basic furniture you need such as a bed, wardrobe, desk and chair. The accommodation is situated in international student residences. All accommodations have internet provided.
Shared facilities and good tenancy
With the exception of private studios, tenants share facilities like the bathroom, kitchen and washing machine with the other housemates. Like in all common areas, good tenancy is expected in regard of nuisance and cleanliness. Read more about what is expected of tenants in the Netherlands.
The accommodation reserved for Master's degree students is located on Utrecht Science Park and on the International Campus Utrecht. Both locations and buildings and room types are a popular choice for different reasons. To increase your booking chances, we advise you not to fixate on one or two locations when booking opens, but to consider all options.
The housing for Master's degree students is available for fixed rental period of 12 months: 25 January 2024 - 23 January 2025. It is not possible to terminate the contract early or to extend your stay. Tenants are responsible for the rental payments of the full tenancy period. Note that SSH' rental periods do not necessarily cover the full semesters. Educational activities may be planned before or after the rental period.
